Arch Snyder
Choir Director and Adult Handbell Choir Director


Arch was born in Buckhannon, WV. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education with a major in voice and choral conducting at Marshall University in Huntington, WV and his Master of Science with a double major in Music Education and School Administration from Radford University. He also received additional graduate work from the University of Virginia. Arch has directed instrumental, choral and church music in Boone Co., WV, Giles Co., VA and Manatee Co., FL. He retired from school music in 1999 after 42 years of service but continued on with church music. After living in Florida for 33 years, he and Janie decided to move to the mountains. Leaving two great jobs, they treaded up to Abingdon in December of 2007. They make their home in Woodland Hills. Arch loves to present music that ‘speaks’ to the congregation in words and melody. He is very appreciative of the support of the music program by the congregation, session and pastor.

In His Name,
Arch Snyder
